Kia ora tātou.
Ko Maungatautari te māunga.
Ko Waikato te awa.
Ko Ngāti Pākehā tōku iwi.
Ko Shaw tōku whanau.
I was born under the twin gaze of Pirongia and Maungatautari – in Hamilton, New Zealand. For nearly two decades I have been a global citizen, living in several countries throughout Europe, South-east Asia and the Pacific. And yet, in my heart, I still carry the misty gullys and rolling hills of the Waikato valley.
My 'formal' exploration of spirituality and holistic living started at the age of 26, when I joined a local meditation and spiritual development circle. For those first few years, I was determined to be psychic; to receive clairvoyant messages in multi-coloured splendour and float away on visually stimulating meditations. I was ready, I was primed and I was very, very eager to succeed. The only problem was, I was useless. Terrible. Utterly and completely incompetent.
It took me many years to realise that my natural sixth-sense worked in other ways; through my feelings, my thoughts and my deep empathy for others. Once I understood and appreciated the depth of my instinctive knowing, I learned the most poignant spiritual lessons of all; I learned that a sixth-sense is not a “gift" bestowed upon a chosen few - it is a natural by-product of being human … or rather, it is a natural by-product of being an amazing, inescapable part of this mind-boggling universe. This understanding eventually led me to the science of psi and, onward, into the unfathomable mysteries of human consciousness and human potential. In these clinical notes and scientific books, I found explanations and theories that resonated deeply at both an intellectual and intuitive level. I found a "spirituality" that made sense.
My vision now is simple - through my deep intuitive insights, coupled with the latest scientific viewpoints, I hope to educate, inspire and empower others to realise their greatest potential; to move beyond the confines of logic, dogma and social paradigm and embrace the incredible connection that we share with our world, our universe and each other.
